Fearless Faux / Magic Murals

March 1, 2019


Hello everyone, Debra here again.  Welcome back to my "Coloring Book"    


Below are some images of a mural I did that incorporates both Mural and Faux finishes. I want to share techniques with you on a monthly basis,  a different project each month starting with a simple one color faux technique and gradually moving towards more innovative and complicated treatments.  I may post only pictures of each step and later go into videos ( I admit, I just don't like to be in front of a camera but,  yes,  I will overcome that fear as well down the road ).  I will alternate each month between faux finishes and murals unless the mural is something that requires series of steps that need more detailed instruction.  I may post weekly or even daily at that point so you can benefit from the process at a better pace.  


 Today I am just going to post a couple of examples of what to expect which illustrate many of the techniques used in one project. 


I chose to show the before picture of this bedroom and then sketched in with charcoal the mural.  Next step was adding a sepia wash for value and placement.  Painted in the sky color added a basic faux finish background, embellished with a broken faux stone wall and finally completed the mural surrounded by a faux stone window.  The reason I chose this project for this post is because it encompasses so many of the elements of both faux and murals and how it changed a plain wall into "magical" Tuscany view.   Thank you for joining me on this creative journey and I hope you fill your "Coloring Book" with many magical projects.

 METALLIC PLASTER by Modern Masters 


Metallic Plaster from Modern Masters was used to create this amazing finish in a circular stairwell.  It is a creamy consistancy that easily blends with tints to create shades and hues that meld into eachother for that one of a kind finish.
